How does “Contemporary Chic Design” Differ From “Chic Design”?

“Chic design” refers to a style that is characterized by elegance, sophistication, and a sense of luxury. It often includes elements such as ornate detailing, luxurious high-end rugs and materials, and glamorous accessories.

In contrast, “Contemporary Chic” design combines the sleek and modern elements of contemporary design with the luxurious and sophisticated elements of chic design. While it may still incorporate luxurious materials and accessories, it typically has a more streamlined and minimalist aesthetic.

One way to think about it is that “chic design” tends to be more ornate and opulent, while “Contemporary Chic” design is a more updated and simplified version of this style. The use of clean lines and simple shapes is more pronounced in Contemporary Chic design, while still retaining some of the luxurious and sophisticated elements of chic design.

Key elements to keep in mind If you are considering decorating your home in a Contemporary Chic style

The Contemporary Chic design elements include:

  • Clean lines and simple shapes – Contemporary Chic interior design is characterized by clean lines and simple shapes. This means that furniture and decor should have sleek and simple designs, without any unnecessary ornamentation or embellishments. Think of modern or better yet, mid century modern furniture by some of the top designers that have clean lines, minimalistic lighting fixtures, and simple artwork.
  • Neutral color palette – colors are a staple of Contemporary Chic design. This includes shades of white, beige, gray and black. These colors create a calm and peaceful atmosphere, and provide a perfect backdrop for adding pops of color with accessories or artwork.
  • Use of natural materials – In order to add warmth and texture to the space, Contemporary Chic design often incorporates natural materials such as wood, stone, and glass. These materials provide a natural contrast to the sleek lines of the furniture and decor.
  • Luxurious fabrics – Soft and luxurious fabrics and textiles such as velvet, silk, and linen are often used in Contemporary Chic design. These fabrics add a touch of glamour to the space and create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
  • Statement pieces – Contemporary Chic design often features one or two statement pieces that serve as the focal point of the space. This could be a large piece of artwork, a unique lighting fixture, a high-end luxurious rug or a bold beautiful furniture piece.
  • Accessories – Accessories are an important part of Contemporary Chic design. They add personality and character to the space, and can be used to add pops of color or texture. Think of decorative pillows, area rugs and unique sculptures.

The space should be comfortable and practical, while still looking stylish and sophisticated. By incorporating these key elements, you can create a beautiful and functional space that reflects your personal style.

What Types Of Area Rugs Would One Use In A Contemporary Chic Interior Design?

When decorating a space in the “Contemporary Chic” interior design style, choosing the best kinds of area rugs for your interior will make a big impact on the overall look and feel of the room.

Here are some points to keep in mind when choosing the perfect rug for your contemporary chic interior:

  • Neutral-colored rugs – As mentioned earlier, a neutral color palette is a key feature of Contemporary Chic design. So, area rugs with neutral colors such as beige, ivory, gray or black can work well to create a calming and sophisticated atmosphere.
  • Natural fiber rugs – Incorporating natural materials such as wool, bamboo silk or, better yet, real silk, into the design can add warmth and texture to the space. Natural fiber rugs are an excellent option for this, as they tend to be more durable area rugs that can also bring an earthy and organic feel to the space.
  • Patterned rugs – While Contemporary Chic design favors clean lines and simple shapes, incorporating area rugs with facinating designs and patterns can add some interest and depth to the space. Look for modern, antique or vintage area rugs with simple geometric rug patterns, stripes, or other minimalistic designs that won’t overwhelm the room.
  • Shag rugs – Shag rugs can be a great way to add texture and depth to a Contemporary Chic space. Look for area rugs that are antique, vintage or modern area rugs with a longer pile and subtle color variations, as these will add a cozy and luxurious feel without overwhelming the room.
  • Animal print rugs – Animal print rugs can be a bold and fun addition to a Contemporary Chic space. Look for rugs with subtle animal prints in neutral colors such as beige, gray or black, as these will add a touch of drama and sophistication to the space without being too overpowering.

When sourcing area rugs for your Contemporary Chic space, it is also important to consider things like: rug size, shape, and rugs woven with the best materials to ensure it complements the overall design of the room.
